Indivisible was founded on the radical idea that in a representative democracy, your representatives ought to represent you. Our only goal, as a group of progressive former congressional staffers, wonks, and advocates, is to empower the thousands of local Indivisible groups to demand that representation.
We wrote this guide to demystify the incoming Congress, because we’ve seen this kind of effort work before. As dark as these past two years have been, Indivisibles have done so much to hold our values in the light. Now, on the verge of a new Congress, we feel hopeful — hopeful that Indivisibles everywhere feel and appreciate the power they’ve discovered, developed, and directed to start reshaping American democracy.
We don’t have all the answers. This guide is a guide, not a bible. We can’t predict all the things that will happen in the waning years of the Trump era. But we also know the next two years are pivotal for our nation’s future.
If you made it all the way to the end of this guide, it’s because you care about our country and our future. You’re well at home in the Indivisible movement, and we’re proud to be in this fight together.
Good luck — we will win.
